Design & Craftsmanship
I spent the next ten years making myself the best craftsman I could be, constantly challenging myself.All Stephen Webster collections are inspired by the things that move Stephen, emotionally. Be that music, art, film, words. Webster alongside his team, then crafts an idea into a jewellery concept, drawing the talents of both craftspeople and designers to turn a vision into a tangible mood board. The collective creative team mull over materials, visit stonecutters, hunt down rare gem specialists and delve into the arts around the idea. Past collections have been influenced by William Blake, the Seven Deadly Sins, Jules Verne and Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries.
“My job is to tell a story, to be inspired by something I’ve seen and encourage my team to turn it into something extraordinary, directional and avant-garde,” he says. “From there we start forming some shapes.”
“It’s the pursuit of these stones that have defined my style.”
“Even today I get excited about a gem if I think I’ve got something no one else has.”
